Establishment of Virtual University in March 2002 by the Government of Pakistan is a dream comes true both for the Male and Female students aspiring Higher Education (working or home based) and their parents.
We are all aware that IT revolution has impacted the field of education all over the world. ON-LINE universities are extending around the world and offering degree programs at a fraction of the cost of conventional universities.
Underdeveloped countries like ours need to spread Higher Education on emergency bases and it is not possible for the Government to establish universities all over Pakistan to accommodate large number of students and provide them quality education and afford world class professors.
Virtual University of Pakistan, which provides quality education from Ghawadar to Gilgit, offers:-
(a) Internationally recognized degree
(b) Affordable Fee
(c) Country best professors
(d) Education to both males and females in their home towns
Some of us think that ON-LINE education is a barrier and students do not learn on computers as well as compared to conventional universities but research has shown that it does not hold true. The future of all students is how well they learn computers because future is the age of computers may it be any field; education, shopping, communication, banking etc etc. In short our goal is to educate as many students as possible irrespective of the gender, making quality education in their reach and maintaining the quality of international standards.
